Barack Obama Is A Lying Asshole
He regrets insulting Paul Ryan in a speech last year. Says that he didn't know Ryan would be in the audience. The truth is that Obama invited Ryan and Ryan was in the front row.
After Obama’s speech, Ryan, infuriated, rushed out the door and later said he had come to the speech hoping for an “olive branch” but instead heard what was “a partisan broadside from our campaigner-in-chief.” Ryan said he found the timing of the speech, which came days before the House would pass Ryan’s budget, “probably more than a coincidence.”According to Woodward, Ryan felt "genuinely ripped” and thought Obama was engaging in a "game-on demagoguery" and partisanship, showing he was unwilling to work with Republicans. Ryan told Obama economic adviser Gene Sperling immediately after the speech, “I can't believe you poisoned the well like that.”At a news conference after Obama’s speech then, Ryan expressed similar sentiments to those described in Woodward’s book.“I was excited when we got invited to attend his speech today,” Ryan said after Obama’s speech then. “I thought the president’s invitation…was an olive branch. Instead, what we got was a speech that was excessively partisan, dramatically inaccurate, and hopelessly inadequate to address our country's fiscal challenges.”
